Established on 8 Jun 1993, the Cabarrus Genealogy Society grew out of 1992’s year-long Cabarrus County Bicentennial Celebration. Through the contributions of many dedicated members, we sought to raise the standards of genealogical research and education in Cabarrus County through programs, publications, and the preservation of materials of genealogical and historical value.
- To generate interest in and raise the standards of genealogical research and compilation in Cabarrus County by means of educational programs and workshops, and publication and preservation of materials of genealogical and historical value.
- To instill in members and county citizens a pride in their families’ genealogical data and encourage and instruct members in the practice of genealogical research.
- To serve as a medium of exchange of genealogical information.
- To promote the collection, preservation, and utilization of manuscripts, documents and other materials of genealogical value.
- To publish books, journals, newsletters and other genealogical materials.
On 30 Nov 2017, the Cabarrus Genealogy Society merged with Historic Cabarrus Association, Inc. We now have a collaborative partnership in which to build membership, create programs and services, and publish materials, including an expanded version of our journal, The Cabarrus Golden Nugget. We still offer many books published through the society and available for purchase in the Publications section.

Lastly, genealogy is no longer just collecting names and dates – it’s also sharing your family stories! Noted speaker Judy G. Russell (The Legal Genealogist), explains that if family stories are not documented, they will be lost within three generations. Share your stories! You are invited to make Facebook posts or contribute stories to the journal. E-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
